U.S. think tank admits anti-missile system for China and Russia want to break the strategic balance
the information Figure: the DF-31 missile According to the United States, “Eurasian Review April 10 Journal article said, the United States to build anti-missile system is nominally anti-Iran, but they are actually in China and Russia, to prepare for. Otherwise, the United States would be no need to spare no effort in the worldwide to build a missile defense system.
article on the level of national missile technology analysis, and that the missile threat to European countries, only China and Russia, the United States truly is the preparedness of China and Russia.
the Middle East countries successfully master the missile technology, only Israel and Iran. Both countries have developed medium-range ballistic missiles. Israel’s “Jericho-3 intercontinental ballistic missiles (range of 6500 km) capable of carrying nuclear warheads, the range covering the whole of Europe. But in principle, Israel is unlikely to threaten Europe. Iran has Shahab-3 “ballistic missiles, which carry a 750 kg warhead a range of up to 1600 km. “Debris -2″ missile capable of carrying 1 ton warhead and a maximum range of 2200 km. If just carrying weight of 500 kg warhead and a range of up to 3000 miles. So that the missile will not be able to carry nuclear warheads, it is difficult to pose a threat to the whole of Europe. The next period of time, Iran has not the capability to develop a solid intercontinental ballistic missiles, the development potential of the liquid missile basically coming to an end.
in South and Southeast Asia, India is a de facto nuclear states. The country’s “Agni-1″ and “Agni” solid medium-range missiles capable of carrying one ton warhead, and their range of 1000 and 2500 km respectively. 5000 km range Agni (Agni -5) still evolving; at the same time, India also plans to develop a range of 8000-12000 km “Shu Erya intercontinental ballistic missiles. However, India and Europe does not exist the possibility of conflict. Pakistan has also developed a strong missile technology, “Ha Futa -5″ and “Ha Futa-6″ missile is a liquid medium-range missiles. Pakistan’s advanced ballistic missile range of 2500 kilometers, constitute a threat to Europe.
Northeast Asian countries can produce medium-range ballistic missiles. For example, North Korea’s Taepodong-2 “liquid missile carrying one ton warhead, a range of up to 3500 km, if you carry a 500 kg warhead, a range of up to 8000 km. “Taepodong” missile capabilities are extremely limited due to lack of funds and the backwardness of the industrial base, Korea Development. Therefore, North Korea is unlikely to in 2020 to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles. If it can be assumed that only the closest allies of the United States, Japan has the ability to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles.
At present, many countries have short-range ballistic missiles (range over 1000 km). However, in these countries, the only threat to the European NATO member Turkey! Belarus and Ukraine with the SS-21 Scarab missiles, these missiles with a range of only 120 km. In theory, they only pose a threat to neighboring countries.
article Following the above analysis that, if China and Russia does not threaten Europe, pose a threat to other countries is difficult to Europe before 2020. U.S. deployment in Romania “SM-3 (SM-3) missiles, enough to deal with the threat of Iranian missiles; and build a global missile defense system that it hopes to change the current balance of offensive strategic weapons. This would undermine US-Russian relations, and forced Moscow to the development of more powerful military capabilities. (Sri Lanka)
